Experience

Biography

I was born and raised in Guatemala where the voice of the individual was not to be heard due to military regime. In pursuit of a bright future I moved to San Fransico California, where I adopted environmentally sound practices such as reusing, reducing, and recycling due to the increase in my awareness while getting an Associates Degree in Science. I have since informed people of the importance of these simple tasks in order to have a sustainable environment. I have now lived in Paramount California for a number of years where I have built a strong communal bond. My work as an Automotive Technician has allowed me to meet my community members first hand who would inform me on local issues which inspired me to be a proactive community member.

 

I am a resident of Paramount CA & also a father. I am very concerned with the environmental situation my community is dealing with. We have an air crisis that needs to be controlled, Chromium 6 a toxic substance that is known to cause cancer, asthma & other respiratory ailments are in the air that our residents are breathing. As a small business owner I am also aware of the concerns of my fellow business owners & will be pro active in helping them with their concerns. I care about my community & will do my best to help them make Paramount an environmentally safe place to live & to work in.
